So now that I think of it, I say, DON'T skip that part at the beginning of Running windows 8.1 setup where it offers to check and download updates, cause this Took just 5 minutes to do it Reply ML49448 says: June 6, 2015 at 7:42 pm Thank you! This is retarded…you can't turn the 8.1 upgrade message off, then you try to upgrade and it gives an error saying "SOMETHING HAPPENED".
I checked for updates in windows updates...there were none, not even in hidden updates...I'm all current, but still can't upgrade to 8.1 on my laptop. Tried turning off laptop, reboots to blank screen. Register now! Patrick no offense guys, but to look at it this way from general public's view... [forced] Windows Update: one of the biggest reason why many Windows users [not the guys here]
Reply Bob Hyatt says: June 28, 2015 at 12:54 am I think the "Something Happened" is actually quite telling on MSFT somewhat ambivalent and perhaps derogatory attitude towards its customers. weblink Dixon this method does work thanks again. Reply Kacey Howell says: November 27, 2014 at 12:43 am Thanks, that worked like a charm. I think I was a bit hasty the first time I tried it.
My advice to anyone is try every possible way to avoid 8.1.
You will need to install this update in order to receive all future updates!

I run a business and will have to go back to my old Windows XP computer til I figure this out.
Some of them were able to fix it by running these two commands from an elevated command prompt.
I restarted again and it finished in about five minutes and said it couldn't complete the update.
Try to download win 8.1 again. Please click the link in the confirmation email to activate your subscription. Nope, didn't matter either. navigate here BUt it contacted the site again and brought me another batch to download, and then again, it did some more.
We'll let you know when we're done" Hours later, something happened. Reply wenkuzz says: April 24, 2014 at 3:10 pm didnt work, in the cmd, my bits keeps saying "the service is starting or stopping. Sign in 314 102 Don't like this video?
Recommendation to anyone with regards to using this option, treat it as a factory reinstall.

The problem is, the patch notes for the updates you need don't actually tell you that they update windows update. I hear that Macs never have these idiotic errors and bugs.

Make sure all available updates have been installed in your computer.
